Cooking up Perfection! LPISD's Nutrition Department Earns State's Highest Recognition!
La Porte ISD’s School Nutrition Department has accomplished a rare feat by receiving a perfect review for its overall performance by the Texas Department of Agriculture. It is the district’s second perfect comprehensive audit in the past 20 years and one of only seven in the state so far with approximately 360 audits to be conducted by TDA this school year.
School districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program, such as La Porte ISD, are required to undergo a comprehensive review of their operation every three years. The audit primarily focuses on financial management, menu planning, food production including sanitation and food safety, free and reduced meal application processing, and professional development training.
The perfect score could not have been achieved without a commitment from everyone who wears a Nutrition Department identification badge, especially the nutrition staff at Lomax Junior High, La Porte Junior High, and Heritage Elementary.
